Urthel Samaranth - 11% ABV Quadrupel - Consumed November 25, 2014.

A: Dark ruby hue with one finger of beige foam and chunks of sediment in the body. Head and lace dissipate about halfway through. Just an okay look, not particularly enticing.

S: Red plum, doughy yeast, blueberry, pancake batter, black cherry, alcohol esters, pruney-grapey notes, cream, and a hint of pear. A very appealing nose.

T: Pruney-plummy flavours, blueberry, doughy yeastiness, estery alcohol, pear, and grape skin with some warmth going down. Light cocoa notes develop as the beer warms, with more dark fruit, ethanol, and pear on the cough. A tasty and nuanced quadrupel.

M: Full-bodied, creamy, medium-high and slightly prickly carbonation, long, drying and chalky finish with a little heat in the throat. Solid palate; probably the best aspect of this beer.

O: A flavourful and enjoyable sipper that falls short of classics like Rochefort 10, Westvleteren 12, and St. Bernardus Abt 12. Still a good quaff, though.

4.1/5  rDev +1.5%

Look: Dark brown, white lacing.

Smell: Mild dark fruits, roasted malt, cocoa nibs, toffee, candi sugar, earthy funk, wood, alcohol.

Taste: Toffee sweetness, grape medicine, toasted bread, cocoa, spices, funk, alcohol.

Feel: Full bodied, soft tight carbonation.

Overall: This is a strong brew for sure. Not one to have daily. Have one on Fridays or share a 750 ml. bottle with someone that is close to you. The alcohol is noticeable, yet it is not offensive in any fashion. This brew is very worthy.
